Nowadays, with the mechanization of all sectors of the economy and especially the ever-increasing modernization of road traffic, we are witnessing an exponential increase in the number of road accidents. According to WHO statistics, every year 1.2 million people die on the road. Reason why this article proposes to identify the causes of traffic accidents in order to propose the strategies of reduction of the accidents which would contribute to the decrease of the phenomenon observed on this road. The survey method, supported by questionnaire, non-directive and documentary interview techniques, helped us reach 80 respondents including 40 drivers and 40 traffic police (PCR). We have come to the conclusion that the causes of traffic accidents on this road are the non-respect of the rules of the highway code and the speeding by the drivers, often it is the trailer trucks which are driven by Zambian drivers and public transport buses (hiace) driven by Congolese drivers who experience many accidents and the awareness of drivers of compliance with the rules of the Highway Code and compulsory recycling of drivers would reduce accidents often observed on this route.
